CoGro Discussion Questions #4

"For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your won doing; it is the gift of God, not the result of works, so that no one may boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)


  1. How does getting a gift make you feel? What about giving a gift? Is it harder for you to give gifts or to receive them? Why do you think that is?

  2. Paul emphasizes that our salvation is a gift of God and "not a result of works, so that no one may boast." How does salvation by grace through faith exclude boasting? How does that change our relationships with people who have more than us? What about those who have less?

  3. In the sermon, we talked about God's motivation for saving us, that he saved us simply and only because he loved us. What are some of the ways that might change our sense of ourselves?

  4. Henri Nouwen had to rethink his whole way of relating to people when he arrived at L'Arche. How did this transformation take place? How does his experience shape the way you think about your own relationships?

  5. What are some of the old foundations of our relationships that get in the way of our building gospel-founded relationships? Which obstacles to forming loving relationships are you still facing, or which ones have given you the most trouble?
